  6. That’s a shame. I wish you could have chosen a time that some more non-Americans could have attended as well, like maybe Sunday lunchtime/afternoon or so. Of course, not everyone would have chosen to watch it then either, but at least more of us would have had the option. But I guess you couldn’t make it work yourselves at any other date/time.

    I’m a bit sad – I had been looking forward to this. But alas, I have to go into work the next morning, and 3,5 hours of sleep is just not enough, so no WotW Award show for me.

  7. didi,

    The thing is, there is no time we can choose when everyone will be able to attend. If we throw this at Sunday lunchtime/afternoon, chances are we couldn’t make that time, being busy with our families at that time. Personally, I have an 8 year old son I have to look after. And weekends are generally very busy for people. The video will be available after the ceremony is over.

  8. mau,

    Thanks for posting those; a nice trip down memory lane. Wish we wtill had the catagory of best monologue and best one liner. That would make choosing best quote a lot easier!

  9. Sue the Fury,

    Yes, I thought so. That’s why I said that you probably couldn’t make it work yourselves at any other time or date. I just wish that once in a while these things would work out for me. I, too, have family and know what it’s like. Still, it would have been nice not to have this at 2 am in the middle of the week.

    Anyway, that’s where the limitations of global fan culture lie. If you choose to participate in fangroup activities whose main creators are half a globe away, you just have to accept that your access/participation will be limited to some degree.

    Thanks for posting those; a nice trip down memory lane.Wish we wtill had the catagory of best monologue and best one liner.That would make choosing best quote a lot easier!

    We do have those categories. Best Speech and best monologue are the same thing- one person speaking a lot of words for a while. And “One Liner” was always too confusing a title for people- it was really a funny quote category, which we still have, with a more straightforward title.

  11. Alas, barring an unexpected change in my schedule, I don’t think I’ll be able to make the live ceremony this year. But I look forward to watching it afterward, and to seeing the winners the community chose for this remarkable season! Being able to follow along live last year was really fun – I hope everyone who is able to attend this year has a great time!


    Thanks for posting those. Looking back at the past results, I’m struck again by just how surprising it is that Peter Dinklage – arguably the show’s biggest star and, to date, its only Emmy winner for acting – has never won the Best Actor category at these awards. But the funny thing is, once I look at the winners, I honestly can’t take issue with him not being crowned for any particular year! For example, I know that I voted for Dinklage as Best Actor in both Season 2 and Season 4, but I can’t exactly dispute Alfie Allen and Rory McCann being anointed in those years. They were superb, and deserving winners.

    To a certain extent, I feel like we’ve taken Dinklage’s consistent excellence for granted (even in seasons during which Tyrion didn’t have quite as much to do, he’s delivered several moments that I thought were absolutely brilliant). But I expect that he was the runner-up, or close to it, in several of those years. The lesson, as always, is that the depth and strength of the acting talent on Game of Thrones is absurdly strong.

  12. Mau thanks for posting those
    I had never been involved in the awards before last season so nice to see 🙂

  13. Alas! Wednesday at 8 p.m. I will be sitting through a boring town board meeting taking notes on my yellow pad for the next week’s newspaper. Nice to know that we can access the broadcast afterwards, though.

  14. Sue the Fury,

    Its just that best speech and best quote are too confusing – there were selections in quotes were more like a speech and vice versa. At least I was confused. But thats ok, I know in the long run it all comes out in the wash, and its not a big deal.


    But the funny thing is, once I look at the winners, I honestly can’t take issue with him not being crowned for any particular year!

    Totally agree, and yeah likely he came close. He is amazing but like you, I am in awe of the incredible talent this show manages to put together

  15. My husband, daughters and I have had a very difficult year with some real heartaches to face. I do not know what I would have done without Game of Thrones and Watchers on the Wall. Sometimes you have no idea the impact you are having on someone’s life. Watchers on the Wall and the many Fans I have ‘met’ through this wonderful website have made life tolerable on days it would not have been otherwise. Thank you, Watchers on the Wall. Thank you to the many fans that have helped me forget reality for a moment here and there. Thank you to all the crew, Actors, HBO, Weiss, Benoiff and esp. GRRM. You have all given me strength without even knowing it. I am no one but you have made me feel like Arya Stark going home to Winterfell. See you on October 12th – CAN’T WAIT!

  16. Daisy Stargaryen,

    That’s an amazing thing to say. Thank you for that. I’m glad the community here has been a part of your life. I hope things have gotten a bit better for you in general!

    Looking forward to next week! <3
